It is time for me to say 'adieu' and retire from modding TS4. The decision is a purely personal one. Thank-you to those who supported me during my run. I've been at it since this game first released, and I really appreciated the kind words that kept me going now and again. If anyone wishes to take up any of my mods, feel free. I have gathered a retirement archive for your convenience. Happy simming! ~MB }i{

*****

Updated for patch 2-June-2016!

For catalina_45's Espresso_machine give more energy mod (Get Together EP), a supplement to this mod, go here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=569384


Pancake Bob enjoys his caffeinated coffee in peace.

This mod is a very basic mod. It only took me ten days of stalking our top modders. I was like a window-peeping pervert! Simply put, this mod increases the energy given by drinking coffee. It comes in two flavors - Strong Caffeine or Medium Caffeine.





Bonus!
As a bonus, I have included caffeine for tea as well.





TEA UPDATE! - Tea Gives Accurate Energy

Thanks to Brainbox, we now have two new flavors for tea! More accurate energy for tea comes in two flavors, Regular and Stronger. If you use one of these new flavors, be sure to remove your previous tea mod.





TEA UPDATE! Number Two - Sleepy Time Chamomile

You may use one of these two flavors with your Accurate Tea mod ONLY. Sleepy Time Chamomile will conflict with the original tea mod (Tea Gives More Energy).

Regular reduces energy by -35.
Stronger reduces energy by -55.

The file modded is: S4_B61DE6B4_00000000_00000000000020FD

How to Install (Important!)

Unzip the file and place in your Mod folder! Install only one flavor. Choose one coffee flavor and one tea flavor. (Sleepy Time Chamomile may be used in addition to an Accurate Tea flavor.)



Made with TS4 XML Extractor by Velocitygrass and S4PE by Kuree.

Many thank-you’s to those I silently stalked: Plasticbox, Shimrod101, Velocitygrass and Zerbu.

You didn’t call the cops on me or anything!

That's a pretty good idea. I just hope that EA managed to set up the internals correctly to actually make it work.

Side-note: I wonder if a sim drinking chamomile tea with a negative energy value when they are at very low energy would cause them to immediately pass out...

Thank you for making this mod! :D

On another note, I know this is a stupid question but I just want to be sure I've done it right. So, the instructions say, "1. - Drop the .package in /Mods as usual 2. - Make an empty folder named "unpackedmod" in /Mods". I am NOT supposed to then move the files into that new folder, correct? I leave the files in the /Mods folder? ^_^

<3 Ty!

Please see the photo reference! It should look similar to that. (I used another mod for the photo reference, but it's the same principle.)

Awesome, sipping coffee for no effect when in a rush sucks, because it did nothing. This helps alot.

Yeah, coffee always angered me in Sims 3. You drink a cup, and all you've done is:

1. Get a temporary addiction that gives a buzz crash if you stop drinking it
2. Prevent yourself from being able to sleep
3. Add like 0.001 percent energy to your sim

Thank goodness you made coffee and tea actually matter. Thanks!

I noticed that with the update the unpacked mods folder seems no longer be required. Can (or must) we take it out now or is it still needed for other mods? (I already asked in "stupid questions", but nobody answered)

You can take it out. I have tested it myself, and things work just fine without it. (I also got rid of that extra line in the Resource file.)

Thank you for this mod!
My only complaint (not about the mod) is that it takes them forever to drink a single cup of coffee. ^_^

It seems that since the patch and your update of this mod, coffee is now making Sims energized. Did you do that with the mod, or did Maxis do that with the patch?
